not only is today the kickoff of the 44th annual comic-con. international in san diego, it's all the batman's 75th birthday. over the years, the brooding guardian of gotham and robin's quote-unquote merpt. has been played by adam west, michael keaton, val kilmer, george clooney, christian bale and this kid. we used to show that on web soup all the time. of course, ben affleck is the next batman, so in honor of the dark knight's 75th, we are thrilled to premiere an exclusive clip from the upcoming "batman v superman: dawn of justice." i hope this is okay. >> wow! >> big time. ♪ ♪ ♪ ( laughter ) ( applause ) yeah. so good. so dark and brooding. they are right on track with this franchise, i believe.
or this actually might just be a filipino knockoff. that guy is not the crime fighter manila needs. he's the karaoke star they deserve. comedians, now that the caped crusader is well into retirement age, tell me one of 75-year-old batman's upcoming adventures. jonah ray, go. >> he drives the bat mobile through the gotham city farmer's market. ( laughter ) >> emily gordon, go. >> batman tells the neighborhood kids about how he had to walk in the snow uphill both ways back in the day to fight the joker. >> yes, very good. >> he has to deal with robin's nerve breakdown after he walks in on the justice league lemon party. >> it's time for "@midnight." captioning sponsored by comedy central >> welcome to "@midnight."
i'm chris hardwick. tonight, we have the creators co-hosts and producers of "the meltdown with jonah & kumail," premiering tonight on comedy after this very show and run, every night for the next 10 weeks. jonah ray, emily gordon and kumail nanjiani. ( cheers and applause ). >> by the way know that it is a show that happens every wednesday night in los angeles. let's start the program. ripped from today's internet headlines, it's rapid refresh. ( cheers and applause ) today, the unholy became real. skies turned dark as sackcloth and the rivers ran red with blood. yes, today is one direction's four-year anniversary. and like a swarm of pre-teen locusts, 1-d fans absolutely decimated twitter with their 1-devotion. their half-dozen worldwide trends included #thankyou1dfor,
#howiheardabout1d, and #fouryearsagofivestrangersbecame fivebrothers. oh ( bleep ). >> oh, god. ( laughter ) >> are you crying, too. >> yes. >> are you crying too? >> i know you're excited about the others but who is boom naganda. >> boo nakanaganda. and there were plenty of lesser-used 1-d hashtags. which of the following was real? a, #myvaginaloves1d b, #thereisnogodonlyonedirection c, #gimmethat1dick ( laughter ) which would suggest that the five of them just share one dick. ( laughter ) >> no, i get to take it out tonight. jonah. >> b., there is no god only one direction because if there is one direction there is no god. >> i appreciate your logic but i
believe the correct answer is a, #myvaginaloves1d that could mean a lot of different things. >> i've said it. we've all said it. i will take credit for being the first guy to post pikachu poll. >> i came up with a new hashtag for one direction. one direction you can have my one erection. >> you get no points for being 12 minutes too late. >> the i'm so blank trend where people cop to being eye stereotype from the city, state or country they're from. which is real. i'm so montana my doomsday buncher has a bunker in case my ( bleep ) goes down in the primary bunker. i'm so chicago i got shot 63
times this weekend. i'm so florida i got a d.u.i. on a fan boat. kumail. >> i'm going to go unfortunately, with b, i'm so chicago i got shot 63 times because montana people can't spell the word primary. >> the correct answer is in fact, b.

( applause ) if you're traveling down the 5 freeway and wondering why why traffic is at a standstill all the way from l.a. to san diego with carloads full of grown men dressed as obscure justice league of america members, it's because comic-con starts tonight. i'm missing it because i'm here. you think i want to hang here. in honor of the most wonderful time of the year, tonight's hashtag is #comicconbands examples might be. dungeons and imagine dragons, lanyard skynyrd. i'm putting 60 seconds on the

lot of time waiting in line. whether it's to buy an $11 bottle of water or to hear someone ask an eight- minute-long question at the special comic-con edition of f.m.l. or yolo. >> the most serrifying thing is a ph.d. uses those. >> also backpacking dad sounds like a cool version of a dad that leaves the family. bought an r2d2 bathing suit for #sdcc, left it at home. does that mean a bathing suit of r2d2 or a bathing suit radiowould wear? look at r2d2's wally toe.
>> jonah. >> fml because i'd love to see it. >> let's find out. fml. and just as you said you wanted to see it, how about this? i thought we had a picture of it it.

i asked you to write a letter to the home front as a soldier in a war where the main weapon is farts. let's hear those letters. emily gordon. >> dear mom and dad, we are running low on supplies. please send broccoli and black coffee. if there's one thing i've learned here, it's that war is silent but deadly. ( laughter ) ( applause ) >> kumail. >> my dearest gertrude this morn i bid fair well to a brother in arms. young billy smelled it, but it was fate who dealt it. p.s., this war is called the turd world war. ( applause ) ( cheers ) >> jonah ray. >> dearest abigail. i love the smell of bacon egg
bruteos in the morning. it smells like... signed your loving husband. corporal j.r rodriguez of the proud farting 25th. >> all right. i think emily got the biggest reaction on that one. i think i have to give her 1,000. 500 for kumail. 250 to jonah ray. that means it's anyone's game. it's time for cringeworthy, comic-con edition. a redditor named box of kangaroos asked other members of the community to try to make him cringe using only three words. we liked the idea so much, we turned it into a came. comic-con isn't all sunshine and special edition booster gold action figures. there's also a seedy underbelly. with that in mind, you have three comic-con related words to make me cringe. every time we cringe you get 250 point.
>> chris hardwick conflict. >> i'll biff you points for that. >> cling-on blood farts. >> not original box. abbreviating doctor who? >> yes! you're supposed to write the whole world. you do not abbreviate doctor. >> ework circle jerk. >> points. kumail again. >> nancy crase cosplay. >> is she cosplay or cosplaying as nancy gray. >> either one. >> point. >> well, actually-- >> points. >> another indiana jones. >> points. >> costume crotch fungus. >> points to kumail. that means emily, are you in third place. >> oh, no!

his green dick all wet on pon farr. but sometimes people accidentally book trips to sunny san diego for what they think will be a fun, relaxing trip to a city rich in maritime tradition. don't believe me? check out this confused old man. he didn't even know what was going on. comedians, with this in mind, please write a vacationing couple's confused tripadvisor review of their visit to san diego during comic-con. we'll have answers and name a winner when we come back on "@midnight." sonic has, like, every slush flavor - someone could ever want. - that's right. this is basically slush headquarters. where sour blue raspberry plans world domination.
